Learn about Dr. Gillian

Care Philosophy

Once I saw what ophthalmology was all about, I was intrigued. It was exciting to know I could change people's vision.

When I meet a new patient, my primary goal is to understand why it is they're here to see me. I can only do that by learning a little bit about who they are. I try to be very approachable and listen to them so I can ensure that all of their questions are answered and they'll get the treatment they came for.

Dr. Gillian and the staff at Ga Eye Associates are a well disciplined team. I highly recommend receiving eye care here and especially under the care of Dr. Gillian. The staff is friendly and competent in their areas of expertise . I had cataract surgery for both eyes with excellent results. Dr. Gillian is down to earth, extremely professional and a highly skilled surgeon, The surgery was done at Gwinnett Medical Center, an outstanding facility and staff.

I have seen Dr. Gillian for my routine eye care for the past few years, and I find him to be very personable and professional. He has been following my cataracts for me but says I am not ready for surgery quite yet. I appreciate his waiting for the right time. The office staff is friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend this physician and this practice!

WARNING! I had blepharoplasty surgery with Dr. Gillian less than 1 yr ago. I have excessive scare tissue on the outer corners of my eyes. The inside corners of my lids have excessive sagging skin. Eyes are not symmetric (they were prior to the surgery). Scars on my lids are very lumpy and the sagging skin on my lids cover my eyeliner. He offered to correct some of the issues, but considering the terrible mess he left me with I declined. Insurance will not cover procedure again, I have to pay.
We're sorry that your results didn't meet your expectations. While some scarring is unavoidable with any surgery, yours should continue to improve over time. Dr. Gillian is still more than happy to meet with you again to ensure that you are happy with how you look. Please feel free to call our office anytime to schedule a time to come in.

My recent cataract surgery exceeded my expectations! Dr. Gillian advised me that Torik lenses may not be the best choice for me due to irregularity in my eye. I took his recommendation to use standard lenses and the results are fantastic and I saved $2400 in extra charges for the Torik lens. Dr. Gillian explained everything in detail and answered all of my questions. I definitely would recommend Dr. Gillian to anyone in need of eye surgery.
